This course aims to enable students to :
  • Identify the optimal solutions to any potential energy storage application, whether in the electrical, heat or transport sector
  • Determine the main parameters of a storage system by applying thermodynamics, heat and mass transfer and chemistry
  • Able to evaluate the storage process (based on mass and energy balances, calculation of efficiencies)
  • Cooperate in a team to discover challenges and bottlenecks in the application of each technologies

  • Basic theory behind different energy storage systems and working principles of all types of energy storage systems;
  • Advantages and disadvantages of different energy storage systems applied in practical situations and compare the engineering problems;
  • Sensible heat storage systems used for thermal energy storage;
  • The potential of phase change materials and chemical reaction systems for thermal energy storage;
  • Electrochemical energy storage (batteries, flow batteries, etc);
  • Photocatalysis (theory, application and engineering)
  • Mechanical storage (fly wheel, compressed air, pumped hydro);
  • Power to fuel (hydrogen, ammonia, liquid fuels);
